COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) —Tuition at 11 of Ohio's 13 traditional, four-year public universities will rise this fall.

Most of the universities chose to boost tuition as much as state limits would allow this year: 2 percent or $188, whichever is higher.

Some students complain that the increases are too much, but university advocates say the state's cap keeps increases to a fraction of what they were in past years.

The average tuition increase at Ohio's public universities was 9 percent from 1996 to 2006. Since 2010, the most that public schools have been able to raise tuition in a year was 3.5 percent.Tuition at Most Ohio Universities to Rise
